This is Gulzar !

— KITAABEN —

Kitaaben jhaankti hain band almaari ke sheeshon se
badi hasrat se takti hain
mahinon ab mulaqaaten nahin hotin
jo shaamen unn ki sohbat mein kata karti thhin, ab aksar
guzar jaati hain computer ke pardon par
badi bechain rehti hain kitaaben
unhen ab neend mein chalne ki ‘aadat ho gayi hai

badi hasrat se takti hain
jo qadren wo sunaati thhin
ke jin ke cell kabhi marte nahin thhe
wo qadren ab nazar aati nahin ghar mein
jo rishte wo sunaati thhin
wo saare udhde udhde hain

koyi safha palat-ta hoon to ik siski nikalti hai
kayi lafzon ke ma’ani gir pade hain
bina patton ke sukhe tund lagte hain vo alfaaz
jin par ab koyi ma’ani nahin ugte
bahut se istelaahen hain
jo mitti ki sakoron ki tarah bikhri padi hain
gilaason ne unhen matruk kar daala

zaban par zaiqa aata thha jo safhe palatne ka
ab ungli click karne se bas ek
jhapki guzarti hai
bahut kuchh tah-ba-tah khultaa chalaa jaata hai parde par
kitaabon se jo zaati raabta thha kat gayaa hai
kabhi seene pe rakh ke let jaate thhe
kabhi godi mein lete thhe
kabhi ghutnon ko apne rehal ki soorat bana kar
neem sajde mein padha karte thhe, chhute thhe jabeen se
wo saara ilm to milta rahegaa ‘aayinda bhi
magar wo jo kitaabon mein milaa karte thhe sookhe phool aur
mehke huey ruq’ae
kitaaben maangne, girne utthaane ke bahane rishte bante thhe
unn ka kya hogaa
wo shayad ab nahin honge !

—– GULZAR

I think the above poem is enough as introduction and ta’aruf of Gulzar Sahab.
Faced with such ‘qalaam’, what does it matter when and where he was born. Yes, Gulzar sahab has turned 86 today. May he live to be 186 or more, as long as he creates such ‘naayab nageene’ as nazmen and naghme.

— Urdu zabaan —-

Ye kaisa ishq hai urdu zaban kaa,
mazaa ghultaa hai lafzon ka zuban par
ki jaise paan mein mehenga qimaam ghultaa hai
ye kaisa ishq hai urdu zaban kaa….

nasha aataa hai urdu bolne mein
gilauri ki tarah hain munh lagi sab isltelaahen
lutf deti hai, halaq chhooti hai urdu to,
halaq se jaise mai ka ghunt utarta hai

badi aristocracy hai zaban mein
faqeeri mein nawaabi ka mazaa deti hai urdu
agarche ma’ani kam hote hain urdu mein
alfaaz ki ifraat hoti hai

magar phir bhi buland awaaz padhiye
to bohat hi mu’atabar lagti hain baaten
kahin kuchh dur se kaanon mein padhti hai agar urdu
to lagtaa hai ke din jaadon ke hain khidki khuli hai,
dhoop andar aa rahi hai

ajab hai ye zaban urdu
kabhi kahin safar karte agar koyi musaafir
sher padh de ‘mir’, ‘ghalib’ ka
wo chaahe ajnabi ho,
yahi lagtaa hai wo mere watan ka hai
badi sha’ista lehje mein kisi se urdu sun kar
kya nahin lagtaa ki ek tehzeeb ki awaaz hai urdu.

How true the above thoughts are, so inherently accurate for urdu, the spoken language.

Thanks dear ‘Peevesie’s Mom’, for reminding me of Gulzar Sahab birthday and this movie ‘Hu Tu Tu’ and its deeply meaningful songs, written by Gulzar sahab.
Also a well composed and picturised song. Composer is Vishal Bharadwaj and singers are mainly Lata Mangeshkar and Hariharan. There are more voices singing some goan rhythm at the start and koli folk song in the middle.

But the star of the show is Gulzar sahab’s unmatched poetry.

kabhi kabhi baaten teri achhi lagti hain

hey Chhai chhappa chhai
Chhai chhappa chhai
chhapaak chhai
Aati hui lehron pe jaati hui ladki hey
